For the first time in its three-year-existence, Liberty High School’s team won the Honorable Edward P. Moffat Madera County Mock Trial competition. It beat teams from Minarets and Yosemite high schools.

Blate is a former student of Yosemite High School’s mock trial team teacher coach Deborah Brown.
